Hosting a mountain theme party? Whether it’s a birthday, wedding, baby shower or christening we have the best mountain cake ideas to help your party look and taste amazing! All these cakes could easily be adapted for a lumberjack or camping theme party depending on the direction you want to take them.
Naked camping cake!
No not that kind of naked (things could get frosty!) but a naked cake! This cake gives the perfect impression of a snowy mountain and the tent and mountain cake toppers are easy to make or buy. Rosemary trees and a gingham name banner finish the look.
This gorgeous campfire cake will look stunning at your celebration. It shouldn’t be too hard to whip up yourself if you have a bit of decorating skill. The round cake is carved and painted to look like wood and then you just need to make a fire and a teepee for the top.
Cupcake log pile
I love the impressive simplicity of this cupcake arrangement that would make it easy for you to DIY. Pile some log slices into a mountain and then place on them cupcakes with white and brown icing. Tree and bear cake toppers finish the look.
This glorious cake is probably best left to the professionals! The beautiful mountainside design is reproduced on the icing using a spray painting technique. The peak at the top would be easier to recreate for an amateur by piling up royal icing in a messy pyramid shape.
Reach the peak
This cake is perfect for a wedding or event with lots of guests due to the number of tiers. I love the way the different layers of the cake show different scenery from flowery fields at the bottom through to the snow-capped peak.
Who goes bear?
There’s a bear roaming these mountains so make sure you tread carefully! With a lovely mountain silhouette band, pine trees and edible soil this cake is bear-y nice.
What’s a favourite mountain pastime? Skiing of course! This cake looks amazing and isn’t too hard to replicate. Cut your tiered cake into ski slopes, messy ice for that powder finish and then add on a few trees and some skiing figures.
This two-tier cake has a rustic look that would go wonderfully with a pared-back, natural style celebration. The decoration is simple with iced mountains and pine trees on the sides. The top is left plain, but you could always add a topper for more wow.
Sometimes the simplest of cakes looks the tastiest. This chocolate fudge cake has been made to fit a woodland theme with a deer, tree and adventure flag. Add to that some long candles and you have a lovely celebration cake for a small gathering.
